The Colts tonight finished signing their 2012 draft picks, inking second round tight end Coby Fleener late tonight.
The former Stanford Cardinal tweeted the news tonight on his personal twitter account:
I am happy to announce the @NFLColts and I have agreed on a contract! #gocolts— Coby Fleener (@CobyFleener) July 26, 2012
While specific details of the contract are not yet known, it figures to be around four years and $5.3 million dollars due to the rookie wage scale.
Fleener is the final draft pick to be signed by the Colts, as they finished negotiations with third round pick Dwayne Allen earlier today. Both players missed today's pre-camp rookie workout.
There was no question that they would be signed, but through this whole issue general manager Ryan Grigson does not look particularly good. The paramaters of the contract were basically set, yet it took the Colts until the day the rookies reported to training camp to get a deal worked out.
